Transform Your Game Boy Into A Synth With This Cartridge
Watch how the Nanoloop Mono can turn your Game Boy into a seriously powerful monosynth.
There seems to be a bit of a chiptune renaissance going on right now, with a slew of great Commodore 64 software emulators and some neat NES-inspired hardware synths currently on the market. None of those things compare with the Nanoloop Mono, though, which has to be the coolest instrument of its kind that we’ve seen so far. It marries ease of use with some really slick features: a rectangular wave with dual oscillators, variable pulse width and a low pass filter, percussion with “extra-resonant” bandpass filter, a noise generator, a 16-step sequencer and a whole lot more. Get the full scoop over at Gear News. See the synth at work in the video below.
